The Port celebrated the 29th year of Holiday Port at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal on December 6-8 . Thanks to generous donations by Haggen, San Juan Cruises and BP all activities were free.
One of the most beloved aspects of the event is the annual gingerbread contest. The community submitted a total of 81 gingerbread structures this year. The top three People’s Choice winners were builders of:
The contest was free, and open to bakers of all ages and abilities. The first place winner for the People’s Choice award receives a cruise from San Juan Cruises! Many entrants chose to enter their edible structures in a silent auction which raised $632.00 for Toys for Tots. Category winners will be mailed place ribbons in the coming week.
In addition, 32 performance groups entertained the crowds over 3 days. Belle, Elsa and Cinderella as well as Mr. and Mrs. Claus all made appearances at Holiday Port.
Everyone snapped photos, got artistic, ate cookies and drank cider to ring in the Holiday Season.
The Port would like to thank the community for their support and participation!
